“Nice place for lunch/dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Have gone here many times for lunch and dinner...Food is good. Atmosphere is ok. Service is good. Nice local place to stop for a bite if you'd like Chinese food. We've been going here for years.

“Lasting Standard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We've been dining at this restaurant for more than 20 years. The food is quite tasty and nicely presented. There was a change in ownership along the way. However, the new owner is usually on premises and most attentive. They refill your wine glass as often as you request at no charge. Bring a designated driver if you're going to indulge.

“Popular Chinese Cuisine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This place was better a few years ago, but an ownership change has done nothing to encourage them to update their decor. The bathrooms are also in need of updates.

The food itself is quite tasty. Some of our favorites are: scallion pancakes and egg/spring rolls, the egg drop and hot & sour soup. For entrees, we like the Moo Shu Pork (but order two extra pancakes with it), and the Sesame Beef or Chicken.

You really can't go too wrong here and they even provide a complimentary glass of soda or white wine!

“Affordable Chinese with Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Uncle Dai's isn't pretencious, just good Chinese at a reasonable price with efficient service and * free wine or soda with dinner.
